This timeless Europe river cruise vacation begins with two nights in vibrant Budapest, Hungary, then sail along the Danube River with exciting stops in Austria and Germany, and end with three nights in Prague-the capital of the Czech Republic.

In Budapest, Hungary's lively capital, marvel at the eight bridges spanning the river and enjoy an introduction to the city by a local expert who shows you the must-see sights. As you leave Budapest and sail up the Danube River, you'll have Hungary on your left and Slovakia on your right as the river runs between both countries for a 58-mile stretch. Vienna, Austria, offers stunning St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Hofburg Palace, and the Vienna Opera House. In the heart of the Wachau wine region is Dürnstein, a 16th-century town with charming cobblestone streets and the baroque Stiftskirche with its luminous blue façade. In Melk, visit Austria's majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe's largest monasteries, and enjoy a tasting of some of the Wachau Valley's famous wines. You'll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful Patrician houses, all dominated by St. Stephen's Cathedral-a masterpiece of Italian baroque architecture. Further up the Danube River, you'll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg. Being the only German city not bombed during WWII, it offers at least 1,300 buildings of historic interest. Your last stop is the thousand-year-old city of Nuremberg, where you'll marvel at the medieval fortifications, extraordinary gothic churches, and the Imperial Castle.

Disembark and travel to beautiful Prague, known as the "Golden City." See the sights with a Local Guide and explore on your own. Stroll across Charles Bridge, mix with the locals on Wenceslaus Square, and shop for hand-cut crystal and art books. A perfect ending to a memorable river cruise vacation!
